Occupation: Comment: married Ariaentje Cuvel. He removed subsequently to New Amsterdam, where he was elected one of the Eight Men; amassed considerable wealth and was one of the owners of the privateer La Garce. In 1649-50 he went to Holland with C. Van Tienhoven, to defend Stuyvesant against the complaints of Van der Donck and others, and died on his return June 18, 1651. He does not seem to have had any children. He had three brothers, Cornelis Jansen Cuyper, Cornelis Jansen Damen, and Willem Jansen Damen; and two sisters, Neiltje and Hendrickje. He adopted the son of the last named sister--Jan Cornelis Buys--who assumed his name, having been left 600 Car. guilders. Jan Damen, at his death, willed 400 Car. guilders to the poor of Bunick, province of Utrecht. The inventory of his personal property fills ten folio pages in the records
